4 Tips To Make The Most Out Of Your Trip To The Amusement Park

If you are planning a trip to an amusement park with your family for the first time, then there are definitely a few things that you need to know first. The following tips will keep you from spending more money than necessary, enduring massive lines when you don't have to, and a whole lot more.

Tip #1: Get Your Tickets in Advance

More often than not, you can purchase your tickets from the amusement park's website. While you can wait until the day of your visit to buy tickets in the ticket line, you are going to be able to get the tickets cheaper and faster by getting them online. The ticket lines are always massive when you arrive at the park, which will cut into your time spent IN the park. Plus, you can usually get a discounted rate by buying online and in advance. Some amusement parks will give you a discount if you know the exact day that you will use the ticket, or you may be able to get discount combination tickets that are only available online.

Tip #2: Do Your Research

It is important to understand that the likelihood of having time to ride every single ride is very slim. However, you can maximize your time spent at the park by doing some research beforehand. If you have children, keep in mind that there will be age/height restrictions for certain rides. These restrictions will be listed on the park's website. Save time (and crying children) at the park by checking these out online ahead of time. You can also research shows so that you know which ones you want to see before you arrive that day.

Tip #3: Take Supplies with You

If there are water rides and you plan on riding them, make sure you have adequate supplies. For example, you will need a poncho if you don't want your clothes to get wet as well as a Ziploc bag or waterproof casing for your cell phone. You should also consider a powerbank for your cell phone to ensure it remains charged throughout the day for all the photos you will be taking. Consider a lightweight backpack to carry all of your supplies, which should also include sunscreen during the summer, snacks, extra change of clothes, and anything else you may need, depending on your individual circumstances.

Tip #4: Plan Your Route

Before you get to the park, consider planning your route for the day. You don't want to follow the rest of the herd when you go into the park. However, you may want to check out the most popular rides first, as these will get the busiest and have the longest wait times. You will have the most energy when you first arrive, and the kids won't be cranky yet, so no one will mind waiting in line first thing, as opposed to later in the day when everyone is tired.
